WHERE TO EAT
Set within one of the city’s most exclusive areas, Jardim Paulistano, Maní is a coveted destination for dinner. Helena Rizzo and Daniel Redondo head up the modern Brazilian kitchen, combining local produce with innovative cooking methods, and with Rizzo recently named the World’s Best Female Chef, the rush for tables shows no sign of slowing down.
Located in Vila Madalena – the boho-chic neighbourhood in western São Paulo – the restaurant adds new credence to the farm-to-plate trend, as well as featuring a rooftop greenhouse. Expect traditional Brazilian dishes with international flavours from chef Ivan Ralston.
Nagayama Café offers the freshest fish and authentic sushi menu with a laidback atmosphere that differs to its sister restaurant, Nagayama. Packed with a young, well-heeled crowd, this is a great dinner option.
